Weckenmann nominated for bauma Innovation award
bauma Innovation Award
The Association of German Machinery and Plant Manufacturing (VDMA), the Bauma and the central associations of the German construction industry every three years award pioneering developments in the fields of construction, building material and mining machinery, as well as structures/construction methods, with an innovation prize. What they look for are sustainable, economic developments with high practical benefits that contribute to energy and resource efficiency and/or the humanisation of the working world. The international jury is composed of representatives from science, business and the trade press. Altogether 118 applications were received from Germany and other countries in all five categories. The jury has now selected three new developments in each category for the final round. The Weckenmann mobile battery mould is one of the three selected innovations in the “machinery” category. The winner will be announced and awarded on the eve of the Bauma on 10 April in the Allerheiligen-Hofkirche of the Munich Residence.
